With the dual tyan boards you have two ways to get it working.  

One is enter the bios when you boot, go the hardware monitoring section, and
push a key to start monitoring.  Now you can load lm_sensors without locking
up the machine.  You will need to do this every time you boot.  I think the
original 2466 didn't have a BIOS hardware monitor section, so this was

The other option is to use a patch I wrote for lm_sensors that lets it init
the tyan board.  This would be the easier option....  I sent it to the
lm_sensors people some time ago, but they haven't gotten back to me and there
is still no tyan dual-amd support.

Some of the voltage sensors are still incorrect, as I didn't have certain
information about the value of scaling resistors.  Apparently, Maurice got
that data from Tyan and sent it to the lm_sensors people.  So maybe someday
they will release it and then I can fix the voltages.
